Seems like the type of player the Sixers would've targeted but Andrew bynum took an arrow to the knee.

I was shocked when this guy was taken so late and I thought he was a top 5 talent. Wanted the knicks to select him that year.

He can very well end up being the second best player in that draft

Well he had to stay in europe for a season so that was a big factor why he was selected this late.

So did Jonas V. But even that there was an impending lockout coming and a team like Cleveland(who had two top 5 picks) weren't going to contend either way.

Pretty skilled player but all star is a stretch. He's not soft compare to European standard. Hopefully he does not flop like the most of them.

Also what do you think about his rebounding ? it seems really really streaky for some reason. Last game he got only 1 rebound and the game before he got 6 rebounds in 1Q. Don't really know if he is a good rebounder or not but I guess if he lacks defense the rebounding isn't that great to.

I know they are really different and play different positions but how would you compare

VALANCIUNAS with MOTIEJUNAS?

What are their strengths and weaknesses ? Who has more upside?
Meh

Him and TJones are still battling for that starting spot. Neither of which appear to be a lock.

neither of them are starting. nor am i afraid that neither will be the first big off the bench. They just might roll with Asik/Dwight/Ca$Hpi front court rotation

Would excel on a different team? W/ him battling T. Jones for the starting spot and T. Jones clearly winning that battle he won't get as much PT. Maybe he'll be used as a trade chip w/ Asik?

Wasn't too much of a battle, when T Jones started getting big minutes up until that point he had proven nothing over D-Mo. What D-Mo could of done with same amount of playing time that Jones got is only to guess.
